關於大竹研

日本東京|吉他

對許多人來說,大竹研的音樂的迷人之處,在於他的「難以定位」。爵士、民謠、搖滾、藍調、流行...這些音樂元素在Ken的創作中,交融為獨特的質地與聲響,他的音樂源自吉他,卻不是「吉他音樂」。他將音階拆解、重組,以想像力重新演繹了吉他新的可能。聽大竹研的演奏,「潔淨,純粹。單純到每一個發音都是美的。」Ken的專輯設計師,視覺藝術家魏籽這麼形容。

音樂人林生祥曾這麼形容這位長期合作的伙伴「他知道如何閃躲已存在的音樂線條,尋找沒有被彈出的聲音,堆疊和諧、衝突、高潮或安靜。」。Ken曾說,他覺得最重要的是「溝通」,這或許解釋了這位來自東京的吉他樂手,何以自由遊走在許多樂類的邊界,與世界各地的樂人深度合作。Ken曾追隨沖繩民謠大師平安隆(Takashi Hirayasu) 學習多年,他說「爵士樂教我許多音樂中的靈活技巧,但在沖繩的民謠中,我學到的不止是節奏,更重要的是民謠中的生命力」。而這樣的生命力,連結了樂手們的音樂邊界,從東京爵士樂到沖繩民謠,再到美濃山下的客家新民謠,隨著林生祥的音樂逐漸長成為茁壯而獨特的台灣音樂場景,大竹研是其中隱隱發光的存在,說隱隱發光,是因為舞台上的他知道樂手的位置與分寸,在有限的音樂空間裡揮灑無限,但絕不逾矩,專注、真誠,自由靈活的即興能力,令人難忘。

從日本到台灣,大竹研的創作處於一種邊緣地帶、多重文化性格的「雜交」品種。他的「無根」正是他音樂裡自由之處。無論是與強壯音樂傳統的撞擊,或是一個人的即興獨奏,這些經驗的總和沈澱出新的音樂質地,大竹研的音樂就是他自己。

特邀音樂家

平安隆

日本沖繩|三弦

在平安隆身上,可看到清晰的沖繩歷史圖像。

1952年出生於沖繩中城村( Nakagusuku Village ),十一歲起以古典吉他彈奏民謠,二戰後美軍接管沖繩期間,接觸到藍調、R&B等西方樂風。到了二十歲,平安隆發現了沖繩島唄( shima-uta )*之美,開始學習沖繩三弦( sanshin )。Champloose樂團時期,平安隆將搖滾、雷鬼、非洲藍調、加勒比海等樂風加入樂團,注入跨越地域、融合時代的嶄新活力,更引起日本「沖繩熱」的風潮。九○年代,平安隆展開他以個人為支點,向外發散能量的音樂生涯。與美國吉他名手伯斯曼( Bob Brozman )合力製作的《螢火蟲》( Jin Jin ),活潑歡快的島唄與Brozman的夏威夷滑音互相唱和,獲得國際一致好評。2016發行第二張個人專輯《悠》( Yuu ),與音樂製作人Gerhen Oshima ( ゲレン大嶋 )合作,平安隆吟唱沖繩民謠並融合三弦、琉球琴( ryukyu harp )與琉球太鼓( ryukyu drums ),廣受好評。

「Okinawa is Okinawa」,平安隆經常掛在嘴邊的一句話,既不是日本,也不是美國,如同他的音樂,特有的輕快島嶼節奏與吟唱,承載著沖繩島嶼的戰爭碎片與殘酷的佔領史。

※「島唄」(shima-uta)為沖繩傳統民謠,編制基礎為三弦及人聲。

大竹研與平安隆二位樂人將以獨特的方式為政大九十週年慶生,演出專屬於政大的音樂獻禮。

About Ken Ohtake

Tokyo, Japan | Guitar

To many people, the charm of Ken Ohtake’s music lies in its “difficulty in being categorized.” Jazz, folk, rock, blues, pop…elements of which are all found in Ken’s work - meld to create its own qualities and sound. Ken’s music is inspired by guitar, but it is not “guitar music.” He dismantles the musical scale and reorganizes it, using his imagination to reinterpret new guitar possibilities. Visual artist Wei Tzu, in listening to Ken Ohtake’s performance, has described it as, "Clean and pure. Purely in that every note is beautiful."

The musician Lin Sheng-Hsiang once described his long-term partner such: "He knows how to dodge existing lines of music, looking for sounds that have not been played – stacked harmonies, conflicts, climaxes and quietude." Ken has said that he feels the most important thing is "communication", which may explain how this guitarist from Tokyo has been free to explore the boundaries of many music genres and collaborate deeply with artists around the world. Ken, who followed and studied with Okinawan folk music master Takashi Hirayasu for many years, has said, "Jazz taught me about many flexible techniques in music, but in Okinawan folk music, I not only learned about rhythm but, more importantly, about the vitality of folk music." Moreover, this vitality connects musicians at the edges of their music, from Tokyo jazz to Okinawan folk music, and then to Taiwan’s new Hakka folk music from the Meinung foothills. Following Lin Sheng-Hsiang’s gradual development into a strong and unique Taiwan music scene, Ken has existed as a hidden light in this scene. Why a “hidden light”? Because on stage he is aware of the position and measure of a musician, and that in the limited space of music he sways infinitely but never exceeds. His dedicated, sincere, free and flexible ability to improvise is memorable.

From Japan to Taiwan, Ken Ohtake’s creative works are a kind of hybrid variety from the margins and multicultural in nature. His “rootlessness” is precisely the source of freeness in his music. Whether it is in the impact of strong musical traditions or solo improvisations, the sum of these experiences has precipitated a new musical texture that is entirely unique to Ken Ohtake.

Special guest / Takashi Hirayasu

Okinawa, Japan | Sanhsin

Born in 1952, at Nakagusuku Village, Okinawan native Takashi Hirayasu performs traditional Okinawan music on the sanhsin, a three-stringed banjo-like instrument with a snakeskin head. Hirayasu started his musical career playing blues, R&B and rock in bars and clubs at American bases on the island, but turned to traditional Okinawan shima-uta (island music) in his early twenties. As part of the band Champloose in the 1970s, Hirayasu helped pioneer the blending of traditional Okinawan sounds with rock and roll, and played a major role as guitarist and arranger on the album Bloodline, which featured Ry Cooder. Hirayasu’s album “Jin Jin (Firefly)”is highly acclaimed collaborations with the American guitarist/musicologist Bob Brozman. In 2016, Hirayasu released his 2nd solo album”Yuu”since 1998. On this album, cooperated with the producer Gerhen Oshima , Hirayasu performs and sounds like the master he is, with his trademark tender vocals and classy new twist on Okinawan traditional songs, sanshin, guitars, Ryukyu harp and Ryukyu Drums.
